The state Department of Public Safety is asking gasoline retailers to post cautionary labels that advise vehicle owners to check their owners' manuals before purchasing 85 octane fuel.
The warning labels are a voluntary step being taken as the Department considers a rule change to require a warning label for 85 octane fuel.
A recent review of state laws and rules determined that the sale of 85 octane gasoline is not legal anywhere in South Dakota, even though it has been commonly accepted as a fuel for high altitudes in western South Dakota.
Due to possible supply shortages during the summer travel season, 85 octane will be made available with the caution labels, pending the adoption of rules to clarify the status of 85 octane in South Dakota.
